The leaders of  workers’ organizations in Savar have urged people to observe the day at home

The 7th anniversary of the Rana Plaza collapse, the worst-ever tragedy in the country’s multi-billion-dollar ready-made garment (RMG) industry, is being observed on Friday amid the coronavirus pandemic.

This year, there will be no outdoor programs to recall the victims due to outbreak of coronavirus, reports UNB.

Different right bodies, worker organizations and left-leaning political parties, including Rana Plaza Survivors’ Association, usually arrange various programs every year, remembering the tragedy.

This year, the leaders of 25 workers’ organizations in Savar have urged people to observe the day at home.

Savar Assistant Commissioner (land) Abdullah Al Mahfuz  lit candles at the Rana Plaza spot  on Thursday evening in memory of the victims.

On April 24, 2013, Rana Plaza, an illegally-constructed building in Savar which housed five garment factories, came down crashing, killing, 1,138 people and injuring over 2,000 others.
